As part of their composer project, fifth graders listen to thirty-six songs for five minutes. Yes, five minutes. Students listen to “Hooked on Classics,” and decide what song they like the best. After they decide, then that is their composer they study for the year. First, they will create a “Pages” information sheet, with ten sentences and ten pictures. After a short hiatus, (we will be rehearsing our musical for the months of October and November) they will start their group composer project. They can do low tech (book), medium tech (keynote/powerpoint), or high tech (website) The entire project will finish in February.
